Strange Maps

If there was ever any question that I’m a huge geek, it would be answered by anyone observing my fanatical love of maps. I love the damn things. If you love them too, and you haven’t yet happened across the site Strange Maps, you must.

Today Strange Maps blows me away with two magnificent posts: first, with a historical map of Russia’s ethnic Germans who came with Catherine the Great (from which group my significant other derives some part of her heritage). invertedworld2.jpg

Second, and maybe of more interest to the devotees of my more fanciful intrerests, is a work that proves the possibilities of the map as a fantastical artform in and of itself: a treatment by Vlad Gerasimov of an inverted Earth: one in which land is sea and vice-versa.

 Thank you, Strange Maps, WordPress homies, yo, represent, Word up, dawg.
